India Visa Requirements

Quick Answer

United States






  • Processing time: Usually 10 business days once the application has been perfected and has been submitted to the Indian visa outsourcer. In some circumstances applications can take three weeks or more to process. There is no rush service.
    Once your application is submitted it is nearly impossible to withdraw your passport from processing without a 4 business day advance notice.

  • We do not provide service outside of Washington's jurisdiction [see map image below].
  • Persons born in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka will have additional requirements and will likely need to apply in person at the Indian Embassy or India Visa Outsourcer office. Because of this we are unable to assist with these persons' visa applications.
  • The content and formatting of this application is very stringent.  The Indian Embassy/Indian outsourcing company reviews each application carefully and will reject any application that does not meet their exacting standards. Please make sure your passport is signed and that the signature on the application is exactly as it appears on your passport.
  • Visa application must be signed in two different places. Signature in upper right hand box must be signed entirely within the box. Signature CANNOT touch lines of the box!


We charge a flat rate-$109 service fee for India business visas.

Allied passport does not process OCI and other such long term India visas.  If you qualify for OCI, or other similar visas, please contact the India Embassy or outsourcer directly.

Allied Passport will only process visas from the Washington Jurisdiction. If you hold a driver's license from: Bermuda, Delaware, District of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia or West Virginia; we will be able to process your visa application.

If you reside in other states we are unable to process your application at this time and you must either send your application directly to your local India outsourcing office or make other arrangements.
